I am an artist in love with color, light and texture combined with the beauty of glass.
Each piece is designed to bring joy to the viewer.
As an artist and an educator, I've worked vigorously to gain knowledge of expertise in all mediums to develop and appreciate all modalities of art. I've also developed watercolor paintings that appreciate nature and the aesthetic beauty that exists in our surroundings.
In my current glass fusing artwork my goal is a complete piece of art that begins with the sketch, photograph or research, then continues with color, design and innovations of painting with frit and fusing glass within a frame that captures and reflects an image.
As a self-defined "craftsman of color and glass" I've explored that realm where desire meets imagination and therefore discover those special moments when reality intermingles with fantasy. Painting with glass creates misty-tones color, grain, amorphous shapes and transparency of medium, with continuous variations of light and texture.
